Another shining example of the consequences of poor choices..........

When will we stop venerating the fucking idiots in Celebrity Babylon who do this to themselves and accept and excuse their actions as those of "tortured souls"?

Very few people actually give a shit about the average joe who is going to die today from a heroin overdose. IMO, that's even worse.

Rant over........off to a shitty start to a shitty Monday so take this with a 7 pound chunk of NaCl

A very sad and way too early death of a man who became, and will be regarded as, one of the best actors of my generation. His work in films such as Magnolia, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and Capote (among others) are defining performances. A small film that his brother Gordy wrote, Love Liza, probably is my favorite- and sadly contains in retrospect more then a passing biography. He will be missed.

In Before the Devil Knows You're Dead he did a nude scene with Marisa Tomei. What I would consider an "I can die happy now" moment. But we never really mean that, do we?

I ought to have included Before the Devil Knows You're Dead- not only for his performance, but only if he had the gear that he did in that film...

He had a lifetimes long cv for just 23 years of work, both onscreen and in the theater. I hope Paul Thomas Anderson hasn't lost his muse.

I knew Jimi (Hendrix) and I think that the best thing you could say about Jimi was: there was a person who shouldn't use drugs.

Sansloy;
Many people don't know that not only was Zappa not into any kind of drug use but he required the same of all his musicians.

Yes, he was just into denial that tobacco and caffeine are drugs. Sounds like an addict to me.

Is anyone "good" at doing heroin?

Sorry for the quad post. Musta been an iPod glitch.

Wish you were here

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue sky's from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

by- Waters , Gilmour

thats the kind of lyrics that moved away from PF
silly depressing stuff
wish I'm never 'there'
'Dark side of the gloom' was it for me
Syd got out at the right moment
-the rest of the band seems to have failed the acid test..
after seeing PF in the early 70s I went with the GD
friendlier people/music
more in-lightened

Hey capsgd;

Brother they found him with the needle still in his vein.

My bitter twisted ironic side is like;

"Shiny Happy People"

Shiny happy people laughing

Meet me in the crowd, people, people
Throw your love around, love me, love me
Take it into town, happy, happy
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Everyone around, love them, love them
Put it in your hands, take it, take it
There's no time to cry, happy, happy
Put it in your heart where tomorrow shines
Gold and silver shine
etc, blah, blah blah etc,,

-----But really the guy was a good actor.
Perhaps some older Floyd would be in order

Meadows (Waters)

"Icy wind of night be gone this is not your domain"
In the sky a bird was heard to cry.
Misty morning whisperings and gentle stirring sounds
Belied the deathly silence that lay all around.

Hear the lark and harken to the barking of the dog fox
Gone to ground.
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer
Making for the sea.

In the lazy water meadow I lay me down.
All around me golden sun flakes settle on the ground.
Basking in the sunshine of a bygone afternoon
Bringing sounds of yesterday into this city room.

Hear the lark harken to the barking of the dark fox
Gone to ground.
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees.

In the lazy water meadow I lay me down.
All around me golden sun flakes covering the ground.
Basking in the sunshine of a bygone afternoon
Bringing sounds of yesterday into this city room.

Hear the lark harken to the barking of the dark fox
Gone to ground.
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea.


The line "Bringing sounds of yesterday into this city room"
could hopefully be of some comfort to friends and family.
